  • UJS of Brazil: New times demand new tactics

    200708ujsOn Sunday, May 31, Brazilians took to the streets to counter neo-Nazi demonstrators and to protest police violence against people of color.

    From the start of the pandemic, progressive forces emphasized life and democracy, with the understanding that science is the best defense to preserve people from Covid-19 and respect for social institutions is necessary to defend democracy. While science indicates that social isolation is the best road to save lives, we need a guaranteed right to isolation, which can be accomplished only by measures of social protection enacted by the governments.

The Coal Unions and the Central Trade Unions have been opposing the government policy of privatisation and 100% FDI in Coal Sector.

  • Stop Israel’s annexation plan!

    The Communist Party USA denounces the plans announced by the government of Israel to annex up to 30 percent of the land the Palestinian people hope to include in a future Palestinian state—an annexation which Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his coalition allies had threatened to carry out as early as July 1 but is expected in the coming days. This annexation would not be possible without the full backing of the Trump administration, and without the extremely weak response of the Democratic Party opposition in the U.S. Congress.

  • Economic crisis and police violence spark people’s movements

    We shall not lose heart, no matter which turn history takes, but we shall not allow history to take a turn without our participation. — V. I. Lenin

    The US is going through the most profound economic, political, and social crisis since the 1930s Great Depression, a crisis sparked by the covid-19 pandemic. On top of an already volatile mix, the heinous racist police murder of an African American resident of Minneapolis, George Floyd, occurred. His killing, along with the earlier murders this year of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, sparked the most significant wave of demonstrations and civil unrest in the United States since 1968.

  • More Protests against Annexation of Occupied Palestinian Territories

    Dozens of leftist activists blocked Herzl Street in Tel Aviv last Sunday, June 14, to protest Israel’s “colonialist policies and plans to formally annex” occupied Palestinian territories.

  • Fine Gael Is Not A Normal Party

    In recent days the caretaker Taoiseach Leo Varadkar referenced the widespread horseshoe theory with the comment that “the far right and the far left aren’t very different to [him]”. Leo refers to this idea by suggesting that the two are separate and him and his comrades in Fianna Fail and the Labour Party are somewhere in the middle. This political perspective is also common in university curricula. In the School of Law and Economics it is essentially implied that the current social democratic and capitalist method of organising society is in the middle, while extremes such as fascism and communism are the other ‘authoritarian’ and ‘totalitarian’ options and both are dictatorial and anti-democratic.

  • Waiting no more: Our dying days are done

  • Organizing the unemployed, then and now

    Hunger, homelessness, and evictions were features of the Great Depression in the United States. Jobs disappeared and working conditions deteriorated. Some “250,000 teenagers were on the road.” And how many others? By 1933 one-third of farm families had lost their farms. Unemployment that year was 25 percent. The lives of working people were devastated.

    The federal government’s New Deal led to political and social reforms. Now the U.S. government once more has a big economic crisis on its hands, this one associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s providing mostly financial relief, with a lot going to big economic players.
